A moderate Liverpool Labour councillor who voted in favour of redundancies among council workers and became the victim of a hate campaign by union members was awarded pounds 7,850 by an industrial tribunal.

Frances Kidd received death threats and abuse from Militant shop stewards at the GMBU general union in Liverpool where she worked as a clerk.

The tribunal ruled that she must be reinstated in her job. If the union failed to reinstate her by 9 November she would be eligible for further compensation for loss of employment.

The GMBU sacked Mrs Kidd, 41, from her job as a bookkeeper after she co-operated with a police investigation.
